About

The Biography Society is a scholarly society of research, international and interdisciplinary, devoted to the development and the valorisation of the theory and the practice of biography.

This research blog is devoted to biography as an object and/or a method of research, with a view to answering the current demand for a theorization of biography as an emerging field, at a crossroads between several disciplines in the humanities. Biography is considered here as distinct from autobiography. The blog welcomes contributions on biography as a genre of literature and cinema, biography as a mode of historiography, life-writing as an academic discipline, biographical dictionaries, and the current impact of digital humanities on biographical writing.
